Cricketer Gautam Gambhir has always been vocal and confident about his opinion and decisions. He has earned a lot of love and respect for taking a stand at the time of need and playing against the rivals wonderfully well. He was again in headlines because of a sudden and shocking decision that he has taken recently. The cricketer who was leading the Delhi Daredevils IPL team has now stepped down from the post of its captain. Justifying his sudden decision, he said that he couldn’t handle the pressure of the team losing 5 out of 6 matches.


Here’s what he said announcing his decision on Twitter:

During a press conference, the cricketer clarified that it’s purely his own decision. While his fans were busy praising him for his powerful decision, he took another big step and left everyone shocked.

After stepping down from the post of the DD captain, he decided to play the entire IPL season for free. Leaving his entire salary of Rs 2.8 crore, he decided not to take a single penny for this season.

According to his team, he took this decision because throughout the tournament the team’s performance was really poor and hence this decision is justified. Gambhir, who was bought by Delhi Daredevils for Rs 2.8 crore, feels that since he failed as a skipper and hence taking any amount of salary is not justified.

Something like this has happened for the first time in the IPL history and people are endlessly praising Gambhir for his decision. Here’s how his fans are reacting:
